Instagram is one of the best and most used apps in the world. We always share photos and videos on this app but have you ever faced a dilemma that you cannot find how to delete Instagram from your cell phone.
This app is so attractive and time consuming you can judge from the stats that Instagram users spend 32 minutes daily on this app per day which is roughly 8 days per year people are on this app.
At some point of time Instagram users might think that they would like to remove or delete this app from their cell phone.
Sometimes using this app for a very long time can lead to frustration and you want to get rid of it. I still know people who use Instagram more than 4-5 hours per day. At some point they might think of uninstalling this app or get rid of their mobile phone but does it save them from this app. Obviously a big NO.
In this article i am going to share how to delete Instagram from your cell phone but before we do that you must go through some main points which are actually important and necessary before you delete your Instagram point. These are mentioned below:
Once you delete the Instagram account it is not possible to reactivate or recover your account.
After you delete your account you are going to lose all your data. Like Followers, Pictures and likes you managed to gain on your account.
If you want to get rid of this app for a short time then you must consider temporarily disabling your account. In this way you will not lose any data and you can log in whenever you feel the time is right.
Coming to the topic now, when you will choose to delete your Instagram account two options will be there one is deactivate your account or delete your account. If you want to permanently delete your account then go for “delete your account” or if you are planning to get rid of Instagram then you can choose “deactivate my account” option.
Let’s go through the steps which needed to be followed to delete Instagram from your cell phone.

Then you need to click on the Settings down below.
Once you click the settings, this screen will appear with options like Notifications, Business and privacy. Please click on help as shown in the image below.

Now you are on your default browser of your cell phone and the screen looks like as shown in the image and you need to click on “Managing Your Account” for the next step.
On the next screen you will have multiple options and you can see delete your account option here.
After this you will see next options where three questions are given related to account disable and delete your account. Click on “ How do i delete my Instagram account ”.
When you click on “ How do i delete my Instagram account ” you will see some instructions and you need to find out the delete your account page link permalink.
Step 9 and Final Step
After clicking on this option you will be directed to Instagram Log In Page, where you need to enter your user name and password. There you go and say bye bye to Instagram.
I think i have mentioned each and everything in detail and in a descriptive manner. My recommendation is to limit the usage of Instagram on a daily basis and keep a track of the screen time. This will help you to check you daily usage.
